Welcome to Posta Via Gufo!
“Posta Via Gufo” means “owl post” in Italian. In the Harry Potter world, witches and wizards from all over the world can communicate with each other sending letters written with parchment, quills and ink. This always reminds me something almost forgotten – the art of hand writing.
I wanted a little and cosy place for sharing my hand lettering and calligraphy works. I love to write with nibs, ink and fiber pens and only when I’m content with the result I digitize my work with Photoshop and Illustrator.
I’m still learning the basics, so hopefully you’ll see some improvements… I can’t really be sure about this, but I swear I’ll do my best.
Oh, but I forgot my manners! My name is Gioia and, as you can probably guess, I’m from Italy, where I still live.
My greatest passion is photography (you can take a look at my flickr photostream if you’re curious) and among my many talents crying over fictional characters is my best one.
My email is gioia.deantoniis[at]gmail.com, feel free to contact me, even for a simple “hello”!
